Beginners Backyard Beekeeping – TEST

Beginners Backyard Beekeeping

Beginners Backyard Beekeeping takes you through the A-Z of keeping a healthy, productive hive at home.

Beekeeping, people, beehive

In the Beginners Backyard Beekeeping workshop, you can expect to learn everything from the inner workings of a beehive, to the healing properties of raw honey. You’ll learn how to maintain a healthy hive, discover the wonders of swarms and how to keep them in check.

Weather permitting we’ll also open a hive and have a hands-on demonstration.



Meet your trainer

 A love of plants and insects drove Ashton Edgley’s interest in beekeeping. His passion grew into a way of life and Ashton now spends his time caring for more than sixty hives – both his own and those of others. Ashton shares his love of honeybees in schools and universities by teaching others how to properly care for bees and explaining their importance in our food systems.
